Veteran leader named growth leader for Stantec’s Buildings practice

Newly created role will focus on growth and development outside North America


Stantec, a global integrated design firm, recently appointed Dave Calder to regional growth leader for the global region. As an integral member of the Buildings leadership team, Calder will act as a liaison with the firm’s global colleagues and support Buildings growth and development across all sectors and all disciplines for regions outside of North America.

Calder previously served as the global sector leader for Industrial where he oversaw the planning, design, and management of a wide range of projects as well as serving as the account manager for some of Buildings’ largest client accounts. His recent work includes Qcells, the largest solar panel manufacturing plant being built in the Western Hemisphere, and a recent advanced manufacturing project win in the United Kingdom.

In his new role, Calder will be responsible for strategic planning, growth strategy for new global markets, developing key client accounts, and driving alignment across sectors, business centers, and global regions. He will contribute to revenue growth through strategic regional initiatives, organic and acquisitive growth, client capture strategy, service expansion, and client engagement.

“As we celebrate our significant organic growth from our North American practice last year, we recognize the growth potential in the global markets,” said Josh Gould, Stantec’s senior vice president for Buildings. “Dave’s leadership success is reflected in his ability to bring people together, develop resources, and execute a strategy to deliver positive results. We are excited for the impact he is going make on our team, our clients, and the communities in which we work.”

Calder joins recently named regional growth leaders Zackery House and Dean Kaardal for US Engineering and Canada, respectively.
